Since he is currently on a roster as a QB there is no need to ponder this question. However, if he gets cut and doesn't get picked up by anyone else, it would make sense to try a position change if he wants a shot at staying in the league. 

For those of you that completely disagree with this idea, I ask why? Because Gates and Graham at least played some TE at one point? I would hope someone can make a better argument than that. 

I will play the devil's advocate and attempt to make a case as to why he COULD make at at TE/WR and counter some of these arguments.

"He's never played the position before": This is just a lazy argument. Players change positions all of the time. But on the offensive side of the ball, the most successful position changes are QB to WR. Why? Because he has a QB's perspective on how to see the field. He knows how to read a coverage, understands spacing, and also knows route timing. The athletes that don't make it in the league lack the mental part of the game. So why can't a superb athlete who has a great understand of the game make it at a different position?

"He can't block and would need to gain weight to play TE": Not necessarily. With a lot of new fast paced offenses, you are starting to see a lot of 2 TE sets that have 1 traditional blocking TE on the field along with a hybrid TE. He wouldn't be asked to block a whole lot and when he is asked, it would likely be against a corner, safety, or OLB. With Pryor's size and speed, I like his chances.

"He can't play WR because he can't cut. He can only run straight": Maybe he can't. But it's not fair to assume so. He played QB and wasn't asked to make cuts like a receiver and when he ran, he was usually able to outrun everyone anyway and if he couldn't, all he had to do was stick that giant long arm out and stiff arm someone. Even if he couldn't get in and out of breaks like an elite WR, he would have a much larger catch radius than the majority of WRs in the league and would have a size advantage on every corner/safety he went up against. 

All I am saying is, if he cannot make it in the league and stay on a roster as a QB, why not at least try it?

I really don't see him going anywhere. That shoulder injury could linger on for a while and who knows how well it will be come August. And if he isn't completely healed at the start of camp, that is reps he is missing at a new school in a new system. If he is well enough to play but not well enough to throw, he could still be plugged in at a different position at OSU.

All I'm saying is, if he were going to leave, the smart move would have been to transfer now and at least be at a new school for spring ball to get acclimated.

Oregon had the choice but I would be hard pressed to think Nike didn't call up Oregon and convince them to be the away team. It makes sense for Nike to continue to capitalize on this playoff. OSU was the away team last week and will now wear the scarlet jerseys that are being sold and Nike is selling the Oregon away jerseys.

This obviously has been pointed out numerous times that "inappropriate language" is a locker room norm and it is a joke of an excuse by Nebraska.

I will tell my own personal little story. I played college football and during my freshman year, a new DC was brought in. For the first 2 weeks of camp, he called everyone a f**k, f**ker, f**kstick, f**king POS, and any other variation of the F word that can be used. I was on offense but my roommate played D and told me what happened when they were watching film one evening with the new DC. About every play he was calling out someone for not doing something right, ex. "You f**kin dumb a$$, fill the gap, and you (using the laser pointer to identify them) you little f**ker, get your damn head in front and wrap up." As he was mid-rant yelling this stuff, a lightbulb goes off in his head and he stops, pauses, and says "damnit, what are your f**king names!?" The whole meeting room lost it and we could hear them laughing 2 rooms over.

This is football

This forum should turn in to another "who will be the QB in 2015" thread.

Personally, I think Kordale Jones will still be the 3rd stringer. But it will be hard to pick between TJ Clarrett and Bronson Miller once August rolls around. I talked to coach the other day and thats what he said.

If you can't make it out to a Dicks store I just bought online. They have $20 off if you spend over $100. Makes the grand total about $138 after taxes. Online discount only.

Complaining about duplicate threads? Sounds to me like a

Lets pump the brakes. How about we wait until there is confirmation from Warinner and KU.

Also, in Urban I trust. Look at the 2 coaches we lost and who we replaced them with. Argument can be made that both positions were upgraded. It will be next to impossible to upgrade from Warinner  but I wouldn't expect a dramatic drop off. Urban and the OSU program will attract top talent. They preach next man up for the players. I'm sure Urban has the same outlook for the staff as well.

So we should try to bring Bollman back right??........ Oh wait sorry, I didn't use the sarcastic font.

I think you meant the Sun & Blue Light Special

Sounds douchier than maize. And a big thanks to Adidas for that one.

Had a ticket in the corner on Ohio State's side but had to give it up. I coach HS football and we made the playoffs. To add insult to injury I won't even get to see the game since our game starts at 7.

But I know of 5 Buckeye fans that will be there dressed in scarlet.
